Boavista have signed Rivaldinho, son of former Brazil great Rivaldo, from Mogi Mirim.

Rivaldinho, 20, had been playing alongside ex-Barcelona star Rivaldo, 43, at the Brazilian second-tier club, where his father serves as club president.

He now moves to the Portuguese top-flight with Boavista, who said in a statement: "Rivaldinho is a striker who possesses good movement and he's a good finisher. Apart from his own qualities, which promise him a great future, he's also the son of Ballon d'Or winner Rivaldo, who needs no introduction."

Rivaldinho posted a picture of himself at his new club on his Twitter account.

He said: "My new home!!!! Very happy for the opportunity to play for a great team!!! God is faithful."

His father also posted about the transfer on Instagram, writing: "At this time my son @9rivaldinho made the right choice with Boavista FC of Portugal. May God continue to bless him in this new stage of his career. You deserve all the best."
